Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 (NX.A84SI.007) (15.6 inch (39 cm), AMD Ryzen 5 5500U, 8 GB DDR4 RAM, 512 GB SSD, Windows 11 Home) Laptop with MS Office
Full HD (1080p)
AMD Ryzen 5 5500U
AMD Radeon Graphics
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 is a mid-range laptop that provides you with all the performance you will require for day to day usage as well as a few CPU hungry tasks such as video editing in Adobe Premiere Pro or Music production in FL studio or Ableton along with light gaming here and there. All of this performance is only possible due to the powerful AMD Ryzen 5 Hexa-Core CPU paired with 8GB of DDR4 memory. Additionally, we would definitely recommend this laptop if you plan to do some light gaming on it as even if the laptop lacks a dedicated GPU, the integrated Radeon Vega graphics are more than capable to handle light gaming here and there on medium graphic settings with lower frame rates. Meanwhile, in terms of the software, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 ships with the latest Windows 11 Home which is no doubt a great OS but its somewhat unstable compatibility with AMD processors might be an issue until Microsoft issues updates to fix these minor issues.
- Powerful AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU
- Full-Size Keyboard.
- Responsive windows precision touchpad
- Mediocre build quality with a polycarbonate body
- No fingerprint sensor for security
Design-wise the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 offers a sleek design that any normal user or a student would appreciate. Nevertheless, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 features a Polycarbonate body that can attract scratches if used roughly along with a silver aluminium lid that looks premium while providing rigidity to the display panel. Meanwhile, the laptop offers a pretty large 15.6-inch 1920x1080p display, along with an overall thickness of 17.9 millimeters and a weight of 1.65 kilograms making it portable and easy to handle.
Performance-wise Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 packs the latest AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU which is a Hexa Core CPU that offers a base clock of 2.10GHz and a maximum turbo clock speed of 4GHz along with 8MB of CPU cache and 16 processing threads. Whilst being more power-efficient than the Intel counterparts, the Ryzen 5 5500U also integrates the Radeon Vega GPU, which is more than capable for tasks such as video editing or even light gaming. As for its thermals, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 comes with a single adequately powerful cooling fan along with a few copper heat pipes which are pretty sufficient given the lower power consumption of the AMD CPU.
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 comes with 8GB of RAM soldered to the motherboard. Additionally, the laptop also offers a SODIMM slot which can be used to add up to 16GB of DDR4 memory for a total of 24GB of RAM (8GB Soldered + 16GB SODIMM). Meanwhile, in terms of storage, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 features a reasonably fast 512GB Kingston M.2 SSD.
Display-wise the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 is equipped with a Full HD 1920x1080p IPS panel, which measures 15.6? (39.64 cm) diagonally. The display provides good colours but lacks proper viewing angles. Additionally, the display found on the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 is moderately bright at 250 nits of brightness. This might pose an issue if you work in brighter environments.
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 comes with a mediocre 36.7Wh lithium-ion battery pack which consists of four separate battery cells. The battery is rated to last up to 8.5 hours on a full charge with medium usage. However, the performance may vary if you prefer to keep the brightness up. Meanwhile, the laptop uses a bog-standard barrel connector for charging along with a 45W AC power brick.
Connectivity-wise the Acer Aspire 5 offers a reasonably wide I/O on both sides. On the left side of the laptop, there's an HDMI 2.0 connector, two USB Type-A 3.2 ports, one USB-C 3.2 port along with a pretty standard barrel connector for charging. Whereas on the right, there's a bog-standard Kensington security lock, along with one USB Type-A 2.0 port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Additional connectivity features include an Intel Atheros network card that supports dual-band Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth 5.0.
When it comes down to the audio experience, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 comes with two downward-firing stereo speakers with support for Acer's TrueHarmony technology. However, you might not get the best sound quality if the laptop is placed on sound-absorbing surfaces as downward-firing speakers always perform the best on hard sound reflective surfaces such as a tabletop or a desk.
When it comes to the keyboard, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 is equipped with a full-size keyboard with a dedicated NumPad. However, the keyboard lacks full-sized Arrow keys which would go a long way if you're using Microsoft Excel for an extended period. The Acer Aspire 5 comes with a pretty responsive Microsoft Precision Touchpad that supports multi-touch gestures including a two-finger scroll; pinch to zoom and much more.
The Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 comes equipped with 8GB of soldered DDR4 RAM which can be further upgraded to support up to 24GB (8GB soldered + 16GB removable) of memory using the additional SODIMM slot. Furthermore, the storage found on the Acer Aspire 5 A515-45 can be upgraded using a 2.5-inch SATA HDD using the enclosure provided with the laptop.
